with a look back at the past seven days top stories and the latest developments this is the weekly on r.t. the libyan interim government has declared the symbolic liberation of the country following the death of colonel gadhafi he was gunned down in unclear circumstances while fleeing the city of sirte and thursday the incident sparked international calls for an investigation with allegations the ousted libyan leader was executed and it video betrays a man boasting the two shot at that price injuring his capture claim is supported by a post-mortem which discovered two for the total forty eight elections analogy to be held in libya within eight months followed by the formation of a new government and the drafting of a new constitution and one of the post gadhafi future looks on certain ethnic and tribal divisions emerge among libyans once united in revolution and then there's nato which is winding down its military intervention while its members rush to secure lucrative oil fields for the new libyan authorities but he's an isa now he is in tripoli would not. not so long ago it was handshakes and ha
1:02 pm
now it's his head and feet and his family and a lot of. foreign involvements and fact that he was always portrayed as a great guy who you also played a lot of footsie and banking with western powers. graphic gruesome footage of gadhafi went viral as news of his death spread after months of being number one nato sickness under the banner humanitarian mission. we came we saw he died. and t.c. claims he was killed in crossfire but edited video begs to differ show here clearly wiping blood from his head then he really did look at the people of the movies and you the footage shown on t.v. proves that he was captured alive and wounded and also that he was killed. total
1:03 pm
pressure is growing for an investigation to find out if it down from the guide as clinton put it or was executed the un and human rights organizations should all push not only for investigation. and certainly the. many other libyan members of the. that supported. but also the bombings that they thought inflicted in libya that destroyed so many of libya's infrastructure and also so many libyan civilians who had died in the u.s. who were killed in the first three alliance officials claim the mission in libya is coming to remember the no fly zone will be reviewed at the u.n. security council but many believe this is only the end of gadhafi and the beginning of a new era of crisis libya is in for a period of horrendous chaos after the nato bombing that's. brought parts of libya back to the stone age some say the race for the country's oil has kicked off france
1:04 pm
is already demanding thirty five percent of libya's gross national gross oil production and i suspect that the people of libya will be furious and outraged that they are paying france for having bomb the infrastructure having destroyed the schools the hospitals the the water supply and the country united in hatred for going down feet might not stand together now that he's gone all these these different groups and we were held together but one thing that was a thing that's gone away here you can redirect their anger at each other and i think it's chaos ensues and political instability there's a lot of people looking back on libya. and you go back there now and that is not a great celebration continued throughout the week cross the country and it seems few people here are really thinking about the future of libya without pinned down
1:05 pm
really means for them a country with no leader a lot of weapons and even more oil reporting from tripoli and he's now a r.c. . and he says keep us updated with the latest from tripoli online as well in you can head to our twitter stream to keep track of her account of events in post it up in libya and the british m.p. jeremy corbyn thinks the killing it could be slams the credibility of libya's new authorities who will now find themselves challenge to maintain order in the country . there is this footage of him apparently in the back of a truck in the town surrounded by a very angry mob of the assumption i guess is that he was killed by this mob sometime shortly after that he should have been treated as a prisoner of war take him interviewed interrogated put on trial and then the due process would have taken place only looks for he was indeed killed in the back of
1:06 pm
a truck and this really does raise some questionable sabbat the command discipline of the t.n.c. forces and what libya is going to be like not just tomorrow but next month next year and in the next ten years because clearly there is a need for a stable government in libya there is a need for a democratic government in libya there is need for an investigation into human rights difficulties and abuses in the past but there's an awful lot of cancer there's an awful lot of irregular forces out there otherwise the alternative is some ghastly descent into war with all the many armed groups that are all there already in libya and be germany when they're coming your way this here on r.t. report on why nato warnings again to get ethnic serbs to remove their barricades next to the disputed because of a border. that's still to come but first over in syria the death of colonel gadhafi sparked a fresh wave of anti-government protests calling for president bashar assad to step

but the acknowledges that now it's simply not black and white responsibility for the violence goes both ways. and this killing civilians but some civilians killing. soldiers they are son was one of the first soldiers killed since protests began in the country he was killed in on march twenty three. all foreign media acknowledged that too many of the only national guards have lost their lives and should have been some people say of its own groups to exist he kidnapped the civilians and only members like my son how could only members kill other members this is impossible and needed it says this is plainly lying. and therein lies the problem the moment. there is confusion about what's really going on in the formation is taken by each side and used to defend their position so if you're hearing the arguments for one sad you'll likely
1:09 pm
believe that i made this atmosphere of confusion and misinformation because for reforms continuance what's the lingering very forms this is another question whenever a new legislation is made we see an escalation of the security situation in syria and the killing by guns but we cannot absolutely blame on the government as i mean some circles are trying to propagate all voices from both sides are calling for dialogue sit down and talk to the syrians themselves agree that if this crisis is to be resolved that foundation of trust for the first laid down but with each direct order syria this all arising already widening political gap. yes or so you are damascus. ten minutes past the hour now in the russian capital itself on some world other world news i should say. four you know in a world update a forty three magnitude earthquake has struck the city of van in eastern turkey
